Slay the Spire

A major update is about to be distributed for the Switch version of Slay the Spire. Mega Crit Games announced today that version 2.0, highlighted by The Watcher, launches on March 23.

The Watcher is one of the newest characters for Slay the Spire. “She brings her training in the divine stances and a seeing staff to cast judgment upon the wicked Spire spawn,” Mega Crit says. The Watcher has a unique set of cards as well as several relics.

That’s not all for version 2.0. The update also contains new potions, balance changes, reworks, bug fixes, performance improvements, and more.


Slay the Spire players on Switch have access to a new update. Version 1.03 has gone live, which enables online leaderboards and fixes a bug with controller inputs not always registering.

The next update for Slay the Spire on Switch will include all of the rest of the latest main branch PC updates. There’s no specific release date, but it could arrive within a month or so.


A new update for Slay the Spire is now available. Mega Crit Games has issued version 1.02, which is focused on bug fixes.

The full patch notes are as follows:

Two Switch eShop titles could be getting the physical treatment. Over on Amazon Spain, A Hat in Time (which hasn’t been released yet) and Slay the Spire have been given new listings. U&I Entertainment is said to be the publisher / distributor.

It’s unclear if Amazon Spain’s listings are accurate. The site does have odd pages up such as Steep and a physical version of BoxBoy! + BoxGirl!, which we’re pretty sure aren’t happening. Having said that, there’s a good chance that the pages for A Hat in Time and Slay the Spire are legitimate. We’ll let you know if we receive any official updates.


A new update is now available for Slay the Spire on Switch. With version 1.01, the team has improved boot up times, fixed a bunch of issues, and more.

Below are the full patch notes:

Original: Slay the Spire was announced for Switch close to a year ago, and we’ve been waiting for a release date since then. The eShop reveals that the critically acclaimed roguelike-like and deck-building card game mashup will be out on June 4.

Here’s an overview from the listing, along with a trailer:

Game Informer has a new look at Slay the Spire with plenty of footage. Check it out in the video below.

Slay the Spire was announced for Switch last August, but there hasn’t been much news about the eShop release since. Thankfully, we should be getting an update soon.

Mega Crit Games says that a release date announcement should be coming in February. Since it’s out of Early Access on PC, we’re hoping that the Switch version isn’t too far behind.
